Product description


'An intrepid heroine, a brooding hero, delightful secondary characters (including an ermine named Snowdrop), and just enough angst and passion to turn this into a Dare fan's delight...There are modern-day references galore that turn every scene into a joy and leave readers smiling. Isn't that one reason for reading romance?

-- "RT Book Review (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick)"

A perfect start to a new series, this spicy Regency lovefest offers an appealing story, witty dialog, and an engagingly quirky cast of characters.

-- "Library Journal"

A unique twist to a fairy tale, complete with an ancient castle, a damsel in distress, and a wounded hero...Dare's lyrical writing and expert, intense character development make this a romance to be savored with the eager expectation of future series installments.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review) "

Izzy Goodnight has long given up on fairy tales, so she is shocked to learn that she has inherited a castle and must figure out what to do with the wounded duke who lives there...Dare starts her new series with a unique story line, a sweet, fun nod to literary fandom, and two main characters who are perfect for each other yet never would have met if they weren't each at a nadir in life's journey.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Splendidly talented Dare creates cleverly written dialogue, exceptionally appealing characters, and an engaging plot that gives a wink toward Beauty and the Beast and a nod to fandom, all key components in this wickedly funny and soul-satisfyingly romantic novel, the perfect launch to Dare's new Castles Ever After series.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"
